Philly builds urban composting facility
In partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center, the city of Philadelphia is building the state’s first urban composting facility. The new facility is expected to open in the spring.
According to WHYY, the facility will compost food scraps from 30 to 35 city recreation centers, with the goal of eventually scaling up to enable composting at all 156 city centers. Smaller-scale composting operations will happen at community gardens, schools and other recreational centers as part of the community composting network, the report notes.
